The Fundamental Counting Principle states that if there are pp outcomes for one event and qq outcomes for another event, then there are p×qp×q ways of both events occurring.
Therefore, if there are 7 ways to choose a pair of jeans, 4 ways to choose a shirt, and 3 ways to choose a belt, there are 7×4×3=28×3=84 different outfits possible.
